Liz Gardner, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Thornton
Regardless of whether you or your adolescent are experiencing difficulty socially, at home, or at school related to giftedness, learning differences such as ADHD or dyslexia, or various other struggles, my fundamental approach remains the same: No person exists on an island and connecting to the systems around us is key to our therapeutic success. Parenting is never easy, no matter the problem a child faces. I take the time to understand you for your specific story and offer further professional guidance to enhance parent-child, sibling, and peer relationships.
I believe in and practice research-based approaches that I have seen bring powerful healing to families' lives. I specialize in gifted/2e children and teens, and also work with adolescents suffering from depression and anxiety, using DBT and CBT. I work with parents directly to enhance parenting skills.
I am often able to get new clients in for an initial appointment within one week. Call our office now to speak to our office manager or go to our website directly to schedule.
